A Suicide, Part One by Eraserhead
You have to be really into your heavy music to enjoy this album. The band Eraserhead between thier heavy guitar sounds and distorted vocals sounds a bit like guitarist Richard Patrick's Industrial Rock band Filter but the difference I think we have here is that Eraserhead lacks any Pop sensabilites. During the majority of this album the lead vocalist has a performance style where he steps all over his band's rhythm playing and adds to a feeling of harmony shortage by intentionally going through the songs singing in his own way off key, tone clashing style. If this album wasn't so much of a challenge for most people to get into I'd rate it higher, but what we've got here is an Indie hard core record which is meant for a way underground kind of audience who enjoys extreme lo-fi sounds. Two Stars.
